Standing ovation for ‘Bionic MP’ on Commons return

Conservative MP Craig Mackinlay receives a standing ovation as he makes his first appearance in the House of Commons since his sepsis ordeal.

MPs from across the House rise to their feet as Mr Mackinlay enters the chamber, and Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer is seen welcoming him back with a handshake.

Both Rishi Sunak and Sir Keir pay tribute to the courage of the Thanet South MP.
